To all of the wonderful children, parents and bakers around the village who kindly donated last year, we need your help again. You can drop in your baked goods to the school from 8.50am on the morning of the Fun Day. We would also love donations of sandwiches, pies and savoury bakes as well.

2:00 Annual Parent/Teacher Match
3:00 Raffle (ticket prices are 50c per ticket, 5 tickets for €2)
On Friday children can be collected from their classrooms from 1pm onwards. If you are collecting your child before the end of their normal school day you will need to do so from the class teacher. The teacher will ask you to sign out your child so that they have a clear picture at all times of which children they are responsible for. Once you have signed out your child you will then be responsible for their supervision.
If you wish your child to be signed out by another parent please send a note in with your child on Friday morning. All children must be collected by their normal school finish times. There will be no supervision of children available after this time.
For parents who are unable to attend but would like their children to enjoy the amusements after 12pm, the children will be able to buy tickets themselves for the stalls and activities. The ticket prices are 50c per ticket, 5 tickets for €2 or 25 tickets for €10.
We are looking for parent volunteers for the Annual Parent / Teacher match. If you are interested, let us know by email at rnsparentsassociation@gmail.
We are also looking for the following in addition to the baked goods:
• Crafts for the craft stall
• Spot prizes/donations (do you have any unwanted gifts you might like to find a new home?)
• Plant donations for the plant stall
Any donations can now be dropped in to the school or if you drop us an email to rnsparentsassociation@
Thank you also to the many parents who have volunteered to help on the day. If you would like to volunteer there is still plenty of help needed. Please let us know what you would like to volunteer for and how much time you can commit. The types of jobs we need help with on the day are:
• Setting up tables, stalls etc.
• Manning the stalls
• Refereeing games/activities,
• Supervising the obstacle course.
Finally, a huge thank you to all the parents who support each and every school event. We are looking forward to seeing you all on the Day and hoping that the sunshine remains with us for Friday.
Don’t forget your child’s sunblock!
Looking forward to seeing you all on Friday & thanks again.
